Continuing our Design Series of tiki mugs, we asked artist Becky Cloonan to come up with something, and our only request was "something with a Grim Reaper." And she delivered- big time! Splendor & Riches Designer Series Tiki Mug- something like a cross between a Catholic candle and something from the Sediec Ossuary, is sculpted by Tufan Sezer and Mike Bonanno, stands approx. 7." tall, and holds 22oz .
About the design, Cloonan says: "This mug was inspired by a Latin funerary inscription on a Roman gravestone dating back to the 5th century AD:
Not splendor nor riches,
But tranquility of spirit and body
Is provided here.
So until then may we all find splendor and riches in this life— be it love, friendship, or a surprise at the bottom of a mug!"
The Plague variant features a black matte glaze.
